NASA. A study to enhance the MDM mass-storage devices aboard the International Space Station. Sol. 9-BG3-03-8-40P. (CBD, Aug. 4) NASA's Johnson Space Center is interested in obtaining a study, on a no-cost basis, of the feasibility of an enhancement to the amount of data that can be stored and transmitted via the MDM mass-storage devices used on the International Space Station. Increased reliability, maintainability and sustainability should be addressed in any submission. The study should suggest ways to increase the memory from 300M to more than 1G while increasing the reliability at the same time, including the ability to "park" heads automatically during power transients. The new mass-storage device capability should provide flexible memory allocation and have a minimum number of moving parts. If feasible, the study should include an estimated cost for the implementation of one or more study recommendations and should also include a business arrangement recommendation. Contact: Marianne G. Bachstein, NASA, Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Mail Code: BG, Houston, Texas 77058-3696, (281) 244-8407.

(CBD, Aug. 4) NASA's Johnson Space Center is interested in obtaining a study, on a no-cost basis, that identifies one or more approaches and technologies for wireless communications enhancement on-board the International Space Station. The study should include a description of the crew-to-crew capability and the interfaces with the ISS communications systems. This system should be capable of transmitting voice and data. Commercial off-the-shelf solutions with low-cost, flexible use and stowage should be emphasized in the study.
